In a recent personal injury case, Tallant v. Dowd, a settlement of $1.3 million was achieved for the victim. He had been seriously injured by a driver who ran a stop sign, and suffered a broken ankle, clavicle, ribs and leg. One of the most common types of personal injury cases are those related to vehicle accidents, and a serious injury could require many months, years or a lifetime of care and treatment, and all estimated economic damages should be sought with the help of a highly qualified and successful attorney.
The value of the settlement or jury verdict can vary, based upon the skill with which the claim or lawsuit is managed. Mr. Van Sant formerly worked in an insurance company defense law firm, and this has given him an uncommon level of insight into the process of filing a claim or lawsuit, and how to get results. It is well established that insurance companies seek to reduce the value of claims as part of their process. Negotiating the terms of a settlement can require taking the case to civil court to achieve justice. Mr. Van Sant is a trial lawyer and litigator, and has recovered million in damages for the injured over his years in practice.
